Flow and Release
The flow and release properties of a plastic product is to a large extend dependent on the condition of the mold surface. Often little attention is paid to the condition of the surface on a non-visible area although this may influence process parameters significantly.
To determine the effects of surface treatments on the injection process SURTECHNO has set up several test programs over the years in collaboration with research institutions. As a result we have built up an extensive archive of surface parameters that influence the flow and release behavior of different types of plastic substantially.
